Summertime Beverages at Pickleman's Gourmet Cafe

Lemonade and Iced Tea with no hidden ingredients added to the sandwich franchise that values responsibility, honesty and great taste

Summertime Beverages at Pickleman's Gourmet CafePickleman’s Gourmet Cafe has announced it has added new lemonade and ice teas to its beverage program – just in time for the height of Summer. Always looking to give consumers healthy options, Pickleman’s has sourced drinks with no hidden ingredients.

Our new Oregon Fruit Products  lemonade has only three ingredients – lemons, sugar and water – the perfect balance of sweet and tart. The brand plans on expanding its lemonade offerings to four flavors including strawberry and a “charged” natural energy option.

Our ice teas from Rishi Tea & Botanicals are organic and sustainable–with a track record of fair trade directly with farmers. Our testers have called it the smoothest, most refreshing available in the Fast Casual sector.

Pickleman’s continues to lead the QSR/Fast Casual sandwich category in working to incorporate responsible, sustainable, clean ingredients in its menu, and eliminate harmful antibiotics, additives and chemicals.

According to Pickleman’s Founder and CEO, Doug Stritzel, “our brand’s standards and expectations are to be committed to healthier and safer food.”

Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe is the growing sandwich franchise founded by Stritzel after he spent decades growing some of the biggest names in the QSR industry. Pickleman’s franchise locations outperform bigger, older brands regularly and in 2022 showed 14.5% growth in AUV. Pickleman’s has been in the news recently for expanding its sourcing of healthier ingredients. It was the first franchise in the fast casual/QSR sandwich category to source No Antibiotics Ever (NAE) chicken across its menu, and most recently added NAE pulled pork.
